Using Metasploit to exploit a local machine

So I understand that Metasploit is meant for use in remote penetration testing.  I was wondering what types of tools or exploits Metasploit has for penetrating/exploiting the machine on which it is running.

I know it has the 'getprivs' exploit that tries a few things once the metasploit shell has been launched.  Is there anything else that is meant for local attacks?

As of Metasploit 3.4, understand it can perform the below:

The Meterpreter adds the steal_token, drop_token, getprivs, and getsystem commands (including kitrap0d integration)
The “hashdump” Meterpreter script provides a safe way to dump hashes for the local user accounts
The Meterpreter can now take screenshots (jpeg) without process migration and bypasses Session 0 isolation

It has a keylogrecorder script @

Typically for pentest, getting the privilege right is the milestone to extend to other exploits.
Beside getting direct keylog, the hash dump can leverage "pass the hash"  @

There is also incognito for impersonation to escalate to domain admin
